Why won't my speakers work??

I got these speakers as a gift. No instructions. I'm not sure if I have all the wires or they are not hooked up properly. Does the woofer(bass) need a power cord?? They don't work, I tried through the troubleshooting but no luck. Any help would be great. Forrest

    What is the name & model # of speakers?
    usually external speakers do need an external power supply. If not a 120 volt a/c or external DC power supply.

Marine radio keeps blowing a fuse

Follow instructions for wiring up speakers. If you don't have instructions should help Now, turn off the radio Double check your power source and wiring to find a short from the battery to the radio. Turn on the radio to see if it is now ok. I am almost 100% sure you have a short somewhere between your battery and radio. Make sure you have the pos. and neg.wires in the right place.

Hooked up my amp it has power but power light won't come on won't power up front speakers work and have sound but it doesn't move to back

Make sure the remote wire is hooked up. You can run a small wire from the power terminal to the remote terminal. If it powers up, then you have a remote wire problem. You can run a remote wire from the blue power antennae wire of the deck.

Please send me a diagram of how the wiring is to be set up on the back of the speakers

The red connector on the speaker should be connected to the Pos.(+) connection on the Receiver/Amp. The Black to the Neg. (-) connection. ( for the proper speaker) Front Left, Front Right,etc. All, or most paired wire has either a black stripe,different shape on one,or different colour wire(silver/copper) So if you hook up the Blk striped or silver to the Neg.(black terminal) on the speaker, do so at the other end (receiver ) If both speakers aren't hooked up the same, they will work, but there won't be as much Bass because the speakers will be out of phase.(when one speaker cone is moving out,the other will be moving inward.

When my radio is hooked up it drains the battery how should i wire my system to stop that and which wire is the remote wire

Ok, if it drains the battery, there is a short somewhere. Exactly where, that will be your job to find. The big question is if you used a wiring harness or hardwired your radio. If you hardwired it, you are experiencing the problems that come from it. If you have the stock harness, make sure it is in place (even if you have to reverse work already done). Purchase a wiring harness. This will make sure the correct wires are hooked and won't fry your electrical system. And the remote wire should be blue. Hope this helps.

Im hooking up a pioner dc deck i have power but cant get any of the speakers working dose it have like a factoy amp or something that need to be hooked up to use the speakers?

the speakers have a neg/positive wire make sure you hooked them up right easiest thing to do is hook up the power and start with two speaker wires once you have sound coming from a speaker label them with masking tape .

Ok everything is working but the remote wire not

First make sure you have the right wire hooked up, there is a Power Antenna wire, and remote turn on wire, and both are blue, but one has a white stripe.. Just make sure the right one is hooked up.

Now if the right wire is hooked up, and still no voltage there are 2 ways to get turn on power to the amp.

Option 1.
Buy a LVT (low voltage trip), they come with instructions, and arent very hard to use. They will only turn on the amp when signal is sensed through the speaker leads.

Option 2. (I don't care for this one)
Find an accessory fuse in the fuse box (meaning only has voltage when the key is in the on position), and run a wire from there directly to the amp.
WARNING ABOUT OPTION 2. This can be noisy, and cause a whine in your speakers, this should be a last option.

Bose 901 mk11 no sound . i have checked all connections, swapped speakers over.

since that u swapped l/r speakers already,it might not be ur speakers,if u wanna make sure ur 901s are working,feed a 1.5 v battery power to ur speakers,,(device a connector,piece o wire ,etc) if the speakers makes ticking sound upon contact,u got eq..make sure it its working,,(see instruction manual)lastly..confirm that ur amp which is powering ur 901s is emitting sound.(hook up a different speaker)

Rear speakers don't work

I do not want to insult you in any way, but I must ask just in case it was overlooked! First check to be sure that the speaker settings on the stereo were not set all the way to the front. If that is not the problem, you can hook another speaker you know works to the wireing to the rear speakers to check to see if it is the speaker or the wireing. If you hear sound from the speaker you know works, then your speakers in the car are bad. If you do not hear sound, then it will be from the wireing. Next is the more difficult part. You will have to pull the stereo out and can splice into the wires. Hook the good speakers up to the splice and check for sound. make sure you know for sure the wires you splice into are for the rear speakers. If you still hear no sound, then it is more then likely a problem in the stereo itself. If you do hear sound then there is a problem in the wireing somewhere and may be easier to just run new wires to the rear speakers.
